You know what is magical? Unicorns! Even more magical than that? Unicorn Easter Eggs! If you love magic, color and a dash of glitter, you’ll love these!
Who doesn’t love unicorns? There is nothing I enjoy more than stumbling upon a craft involving my favorite mystical creature! With Easter right around the corner, these Unicorn Easter Eggs will make a fabulous addition to those Easter Baskets!
It is the perfect Easter Egg project for messy little ones since this tutorial includes zero dye! That’s right, keep those tabletops nice and dry while your kids have a blast making Unicorn Easter Eggs. Just boil those eggs and have your kids glue away. It doesn’t get easier than that!
PS ~ Like the “Egg Stands”? These are plastic shot glasses filled with Easter grass. I have a link below for the ones I used. You’re welcome. 😉
Unicorn Easter Eggs
What You Need:
- Hardboiled Eggs (cooked and dried on the outside)
- A Sheet of Gold Paper (You can always print to avoid the craft store!)
- A Sheet of Pink Paper (can also use a pink Sharpie)
- Black Sharpie
- Paper Flowers ( These were purchased at the Dollar Tree)
- Plastic Shot Glasses
How to Make Unicorn Easter Eggs:
- Boil your eggs. You want to make sure your eggs are fully cooked, cooled and dry on the outside.
- Now cut your sheet of gold paper into rectangles like shown.
- Take your gold paper rectangles and wrap really tight to create a unicorn horn. When you get your gold paper rectangle to resemble a unicorn horn, glue the edge together with your glue. Trim your unicorn horn to the desired height. (tip ~ you will want your unicorn horn to be slightly taller than you would think. The paper flowers will cover some of the horn! You want that horn visible.)
- Now take your pink paper and cut out pink circles for cheeks! If you have a hole punch, you can always use that instead of scissors to make those perfect circles. If you’d rather, you can also use a Pink Sharpie Marker to draw circles onto the eggs for cheeks.
- Once your unicorn horns have dried, glue your horn on the top of the egg with your glue.
- Now glue your paper flowers onto the egg. Tip: Although your flowers are sticky on the backside, they may adhere better using glue.
- After your unicorn horn and flowers have dried, draw your unicorn eyes and eyelashes on your eggs using your black Sharpie marker. I suggest practicing on a blank piece of paper to prefect your technique before drawing on the actual Unicorn EasterEgg since Sharpies are permanent. You only get one shot!
- Tad-a! You now have Unicorn Easter eggs!
Definitely the most glamorous Easter Eggs that Easter Bunny will see! Have a great Easter.
